After suffering for 6 years with depression and anxiety issues this has been a god send. Within the first 2 weeks I began to feel like myself again. I take it before bed every night and I sleep 100x better (I have been on and off prescription sleep meds for my insomnia for 2 years) the only side effect that really bugs me is increased sweating. It seems when I am dealing with a situation that used ... Show Full Comment

The only side effect I get from taking this medication is I find myself yawning quite a bit. It isn't that I am tired, but it is a common side effect that can be a little annoying at times. Otherwise the small amount I take (10mg) daily in the morning helps keep my mind balanced without feeling as though I don't have control of my own thoughts and feelings.

This is the first anti-depressant that had no side effects for me and it changed my life. For years I didn't laugh much and I was unhappy. About 2 weeks after starting this medicine, I realized that I felt like "myself" again. I recommend Celexa to everyone who can take it! ( I take it at night because it DOES make me sleepy.)

Comment:
I take 40mg each morning. I had no nausea and after a week or so at this dose my symptoms improved dramitically. No more panic, crying or feeling terribly sad. My sleep pattern improved too. I used to take ages getting to sleep and wake up in the very early hours. I had tried several other SSRIs but none of them worked long-term. Citalopram is different! I can get on with my life and no sid ... Show Full Comment
